Anna-Liisa by Minna Canth – A staged reading

Anna-Liisa by Minna Canth – A staged reading 

Saturday, 7th of July

Rural Finland, 1895. Mere days before her wedding is to be announced, Anna-Liisa receives an unexpected visitor. This intrusion from her troubled past threatens to overthrow her tentative steps towards happiness.

Dubbed as “the most pure-blooded realist in Finnish literature”, Minna Canth (1844-1897) is one of Finland’s most celebrated playwrights, whose work recalls her Nordic  contemporaries, Ibsen and Strindberg.

Canth fought throughout her life for women’s equality, and her final play Anna-Liisa (1895) is a provocative feminist work, exposing male sexual hypocrisy and women’s persistent struggle for agency over their own bodies.
